Prostate Cancer Trends, 1973-1995 offers one of the most comprehensive population-based evaluations ever published on demographic and clinical features of prostate cancer cases. The results provide insights into the likely directions for prostate cancer research over the next decade, related to etiology and prevention, early detection and therapy. These population-based data are extremely important in furthering our understanding of this cancer, which has the distinction of being the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men and their second leading cause of cancer death. Prostate cancer has been the source of enormous public and professional interest over the last few years. The recent introduction of PSA screening and changes in disease management have led to changes in incidence trends and treatment, and these are extensively chronicled in this publication.
